A film crew will visit the classroom of social studies teacher Dr. Andy Smith as part of the Real Change Project starting at 11 a.m. Feb. 25. The filming will involve Smith, LBHS students and Real Change founder and CEO Liam Murphy, a graduate of LBHS’s Class of 1996.
Murphy has worked on this project for six years, connecting superstar celebrities including Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pitbull, Lady Antebellum, LMFAO and Jason Mraz, with their hometown schools in an effort to give back to those who helped them get their successful start, according to the Long Beach School District.
Murphy family are Long Beach natives who have deep ties within the community. His father, Jack, taught at Long Beach High School for 30 years, his grandmother was a lunch room monitor, and Liam is passionate in supporting his district as well as schools in need throughout the country.
Long Beach teachers and students will be presented with donated supplies, including an assortment of technology products and Samsung tablets, to help rebuild and replenish supplies following the devastation of Superstorm Sandy.
This prime-time, nationally televised compilation show will air April 23 at 7 p.m. on CBS. Starting March 1 and running through May 31, people can visit www.officedepot.com/realchange
to make a donation to these schools and Office Depot will match the donations made.MORE NEWS
